After the windstorm that broke his previous antenna, Mike is back last night with a "160m full sized vertical". I try to imagine !!
Despite poor conditions, Mike is the only one NA station crossing the pond and now take place in my 160m challenge list with 1W.
In the night Jaap (PA0O) had opened the way.

Frits (W1FVB) gave a good example of fine tuning of window time, % time tx and pwr TX:

Excellent night session on 160m WSPR with great opportunities and so, great spots!!:

I spotted this morning, with a little advance, my first North American station of my new season in 160m WSPR, as usual in my gray line:
